Miss Montes

Hello,

My name is Miss. Montes and I am so excited to be your kindergarten teacher for the 2022/2023 school year! This is my second year teaching Kindergarten here at Klockner Elementary. I am a recent graduate of William Paterson University, class of 2021, where I received a BA in Early Childhood Education and Psychology. I am currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and will successfully complete this program Fall of 2022! When I am not teaching, studying, or praying to my Heavenly Father, I spend most of my time with my 14yo son, Jay and two sisters. I also love to rewatch old tv shows from the 90s, reading, playing cards, doing puzzles, or spend quality time with family and friends. However, the thing I love to do most is to have quality time with myself!

There is so much to do in Kindergarten! Not only do we learn our ABC's, 123's, colors, and shapes, but also learn the important meaning of showing that we care through sharing and being kind towards others. Kindergarten is a time where the minds of our little ones begin to explore so many wonderful things about their communities, their school, and how they are a huge part of it all. I am so excited to be a part of the beginning stages of helping our little Kinders explore much about themselves and who they are becoming in this great big world, one day at a time. 

Once again, I am so excited to be your Kindergarten teacher. I know that we are going to have so much fun. Should you have any questions feel free to contact me via email at jmontes@htsdnj.org or via phone at 609-631-4154!
